Veed, please let me know what you think. I am thinking of going with the same combination, but I don't know if I should get the 8800 GTX to run the bigger monitor.

Well i plan on getting a gtx down the line but for the moment the gts is plenty. I figure 3 months should drop the price of the gts a few bucks so i'll save some money down the line. As far as the monitor, the acer 24" is a pretty decent monitor for the money, compared to my 4 year old viewsonic 20" i think it looks better.

Hopefully the GTX goes under $~300 once the GeForce 9 series comes out. Well it's just an idea, but if it does go below $~300; I would definitely buy it!

I doubt the GTX going that low. But for the GTS, it might be possible.

320MB is already under ~$300. But what happens if it went under ~$200? OOLALA.

I figured 280 for a gts with the ability to upgrade later to either a g92 or gtx was worth it. As i said, so far its chugging along just fine at 1920x1200 even running dual displays. Right now im hanging out at lumber mill in arathi basin at 55 fps. Also, dont forget that evga credits you what you PAID, not what the retail price is. So buying it now and upgrading to a gtx when those prices drop is a no lose situation.

But i also plan on stepping up to either a gtx or g92 when i get close to the 90 day mark. So it can handle 1920x1200 pretty well, i'll see how well it holds up when i get bioshock tuesday.
bioshock is a very big step up from WoW
